МOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - Pakistan is not planning to close the embassy in Moscow, a Pakistani diplomat told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Commenting on the Pakistani authorities’ decision to stop the work of 15 embassies, the diplomat said, “The embassy in Moscow is not planning to be closed.”
Pakistan’s Nation writes that the government will close the embassies for cost reasons. The Pakistani Foreign Ministry is realizing the initiative by two stages. First, it is planning to close the embassies in Port Louis (Mauritius), Santiago (Chile), Niamey (Niger), Belgrade (Serbia) and Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina). The project to open a consulate-general in Bandar Abbas (Iran) is being frozen, the Nation reports.
It declines to specify what embassies will be closed at the second stage.
